Easy Firefox Browsing

Recommended Posts

When browsing the web with firefox, getting to the website you want has become very easy. If, for example, you just type a domian 'keyword' into the address bar. such as ebay the website http://www.ebay.com will load. This is because, when Google is set as the primary search tool, Firefox will Google whatever you typed in and load the page that appears frist on the Google Search results.

Try it out. You'll find many easy shortcuts to improve your browsing.

There's a setting in IE to "Just go to the most likely site" after a search, sounds like it'd do the same thing. "Internet Options"/ "Advanced" tab/ "Search from the address bar" section/ "Just go the most likely site" radio button.

You can also go to your bookmarks properties and define a keyword for it. For example... if you bookmark www.digg.com you can just ad a keyword of 'digg' and type that in the address bar. I've done this for almost all of my bookmarks. Slashdot is "/.", Best Techie is a simple 'BT'.

i do not no what part of the deal

it is

ive used it for several years

if you want to critisise it

why dont you try it

ive tried all the others

and i prefer it to any of the others

firefox is an off shoot of netscape

which us full of bloated ads and bloatware

now it is a google clone.

slim browser is much faster than any of the others

and has exactly the same features

tab browsing

spy ware blocking

what the hell else do you weant

i tried firefox and it was always

interfering with my cookies

which i like to control my self

look at this way

if it didnt have a platform to work from

it would be a nono

windows is its life saver

i uninstalled it 3 times

because i didnt like it

that is my perogitive isnt it
